Real Psychic Experiences

Wow. Overwhelmed. Psychic?


I guess I should start my story out by saying when I was of the age of 6 years old. At nights while in bed I would see a number of clear, see through, images of people in my room. Couldn't see any face and they appeared to just randomly walk in and walk out. For a 6 year old I was terrified. I didn't want to move or say anything. I would just watch all the commotion of movement.

As I got older I would see less and less of these images and were completely gone when placed on medication by the time I was in my early 30's. Was supposedly diagnosed with Schizophrenia. I started doubting this diagnosis after people who knew me would say, "You are far from being Schizophrenic, you have no characteristics of the condition, you talk normal, you act normal," ect. Until one day I was told by someone that I may be intuitive. It opened another door of exploration. I am now attending metaphysics classes in our area to learn the possibilities that I may be psychic.

I had my first class a few days ago and learned to meditate and do some readings. Something that is overwhelming to me is the possibility to run into a negative entity and how I could be pesterd by the entity. Especially at nights. How do I handle this? I can also see swirling images fade in and out if I close my eyes and concentrate. The images take about 15 seconds to get going but they can be anything from a pair of eyes, to faces, to unusual shapes.

Just last night I had some very vivid dreams, I was actually conscious of me feeling asleep and entering a dream. I could hear my heart beat and breathing as well. I have no support of the family. I am the only person in the family who appears to have this ability. My parents are strict Baptists and only believe in demons if anyone sees spirits. I am terrified what I may be delving into since I am weening off my psychotic meds and going to all herbal meds, which my senses will be even more heightened.

Any support and recommendations will be greatly accepted.

Hi Demian, I have had a similar type path as you in the beginning. I saw a blue shadowy figure when I was young, was so scared I blocked it all out for years and years. I only just started "re-awakening" in my 30s and 40s. Something that helped me tremendously was to study Reiki, and became a Reiki practitioner.

Also in addition to the Ted Andrews book that Velcro mentioned, "How to Meet and Work with Your Spirit Guides" by Ted Anderws, is also an excellent book to learn exercises to help you and also for ideas for protection.

From my experience, I just started out very very slow. I would read a few chapters in a book and put it down for a week or however long I needed to, until I felt confident enough to continue.

I don't see human spirits usually, but with Reiki I see mostly Animal Energies/Totems. I do get intuitive info from people at times. One time I heard a song in my head while doing Reiki, I told the client what song it was..."I've been working on the railroad" (Not a song I want in my head very often LOL). And it was a validation to her, as her grandfather worked on the railroad and she had hoped to hear from him during the session. So sometimes the goofiest things to us, are meant to help others.

The Light Worker's Way, by Doreen Virtue is another book that helped me on my path. I have read a lot of Sylvia Browne's books as well, and to me she is very soothing as she explains the other side, she made me way less afraid of it.

But basically it sounds like you are getting it right about asking for protection from your guides and angels. Good luck to you!

Peace and Light to you

Thank you so much for everyones input on my problem. I have read each post with the utmost interest.

I have learned from talking to others who are versed in this area have agreed that I need to ask the universe for guidance in this matter. I now understand that people have the ability to chose to dwell either on the positive or negative side of the spirit world. Was told if I receive negative thoughts and imagery to ask my guides and universe to remove these from sight. People who tend to gravitate to the negative side ultimately move towards Black Magic, the Occult, ect. And those who are positive look to use it for the good of mankind. Do I sound like I'm understanding this correctly?

Now as far as contacting my spirit guides. I am really at a lose on this. I know pretty much how to meditate but that is as far as I know. The area of discovering my psychic abilities, I know little about. I just know I have had the ability to see things that no one else in my family can see. In fact, my family are strict Southern Baptists and only think these are demons that people see. I am pretty much on my own besides my metaphysics teacher.

As far as me wanting this. I can honestly say "I do". But I will need some instructions and guidance.

Anne, I could not of said it better myself. So cool to read your response to Demian37's story. I totally agree with Anne, take her advice. Use the archangels to protect yourself, and the Great Spirit. A book I can suggest is "Psychic Protection," by Ted Andrews, it's helping me a great deal. Use sage to rid negative energy from your energy field, and know we are here and interested in your progress. Above all, know you are NOT mentally ill as you said the doctors said. You have a gift honey get strong and use it wisely. A suggestion is to watch "Medium" & "Ghost Whisperer," on tv, I have been for a couple of years. I have learned many things from them, especially "Medium." Patti

Hearing spirits and inner voices can often be misdiagnosed as Schizophrenia (I have done extensive research into the differences since I have studied psychology and philosophy my entire life).

It is important to have the protection of your Angels and the guidance of your Guides. Many children see their Guides. They appear either in person like a spirit or ghost, or as an inner voice, or in dreamstate, but you never fear them. Whereas ghosts, entities, and spirits can often seem spooky in the way they make contact, such as the ones who enter your room when you are at rest (making you more approachable).

I suggest you make contact with your Guides before assisting these spirits who come to you. Do you know how to contact your Guides?

It is difficult to give reassurances at this point to so many people on this site when it comes to wanting to avoid unpleasant entities when dealing with the subtle realm.

Let's go over the facts for most people on this site and in this world (remember, this is equivalent of first grade): First, most people grow up with a limited and fear based religion that taught them little about the paranormal other than it's the devil's work and to not even try to learn anything about it or themselves in relation to it. This puts control 100% with the church which is what they want. If religion were all inclusive, there wouldn't be so many terrified Christians, Baptists, Lutherans, and so on out there. If it were all inclusive, then they (and you) would have mastered the out-of-body experience, telepathy, the soul's journey, and so on, but that's far from the truth.

So what happens is, that despite being told that such things don't exist or only happen to the wicked, well, they do exist and don't just happen to the wicked. So we grow up terrified, ignorant, drugged up and by the time we die, we know as little as when we were born.

However, some people wake up to the fact that there is mountain of data out there that they might just want to take a second look at. You apparently are one of them, as is everyone on this site, or they wouldn't be here. So now, at 30+ years of age, you've come to the conclusion that maybe the doctors were wrong, the church didn't prepare you and now you want to begin exploring and learning more about the universe. This is great news, but remember, you know next to nothing and have no tools. For all the advise that I, or anyone on this site can give you, how do you not get afraid of the very thing you've shut out and have no clue about? Even very advanced subtle real travelers still deal with this stuff. It's just part of the terrain. These doors, once opened, are almost impossible to close. So be careful what you wish for.

There is only one true way to overcome fear and that's through experience. No article, letter, morsel of advise, or book is going to take that away from you. So you then have to decide, "Do I really want to do this?" It has both highs and lows, ups and downs. All I can say is that if you truly dedicate yourself to the path and pursuit of truth, then the light, wisdom and knowledge gained far outweigh the nasty elements. There is fear with any unknown that you pursue. So do you want to stay in the shadows of fear, or move into the light of knowledge? That's up to you!
